The Essential Steps for Bringing a Facility Project to Market Quickly

The competitive nature of the high-tech industry - a source of innovation, jobs, and rapid growth - often requires bringing new facilities online quickly. Whether semiconductor plants or data centers, speed-to-market is the watchword in the design and construction of mission critical facilities. High-tech firms that need a rapid response to their markets must look for facility designers who understand how to get the job done quickly and correctly.

Page Senior Principal Michael Mace is an expert in this area, and the author of the article The Essential Steps for Bringing a Facility Project to Market Quickly. In it, Michael identifies three essential tactics to bring a project to market quickly:

  1. Commitment to collaboration: Owner, architect, and contractor must make a conscious, clear commitment to work together as a single team.
  2. Pre-design analysis: This analysis uncovers the requirements of the project, its timing, budget, and potential problems that may occur.
  3. Flexible schedule: The collaborative team must develop a flexible schedule that allows for changes in the project during construction.

The article continues with several useful steps that can enhance the completion of the facility once these three tactics are in place and operational.
